Improving the assessment of experimental science through evidence-based research: key questions

Activity: Talk or presentation typesLecture and oral contribution

Jens Dolin - Lecturer

The presentation will look at summative assessment of experimental science in the context of science education. It will point at the necessary alignment between the purposes of experimental science in school, the way experimental science is realized, and the assessment forms used for summative (as well as formative) purpose. Based on research findings it will give some directions for future practice that can combine a more valid summative assessment with an improved student learning.
